Cats on Tuesday--Conversation about Feeding
This morning I overhead a funny conversation about Anela, our cat. My partner (male) and one of our house guests (also male) were sitting at the dining room table having breakfast as they discussed the best way to get Anela to eat her full morning breakfast. I sat at my computer, and to the best of my memory this is what I overheard two MALES say:
Partner: I don't know why Anela's not eating her full breakfast lately. She's leaving a lot of it.
Houseguest: Perhaps you shouldn't feed her so much.
Partner: I don't know how to get her to eat more.
Houseguest: Don't give her so much. Give her a little and put the rest in a baggie or a tupperware, then put it in the fridge,
Partner: She likes her food hot. I always add hot water the way she likes it.
Houseguest: Heat the food up in the microwave before serving it. It'll be hotter that way.
Partner: She likes it with water so it's mushy.
Houseguest: Add water to it after the microwave.
And on and on this conversation went with me ROFL!
ME: And they say men aren't nurturing! They certainly are, especially when it comes to being the devoted staff/servants of Ms. Anela!
